This morning, the Jefferson Parish Clerk of Court became the first Clerk of Court to give the green light to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Shortly thereafter, in a ceremony officiated by The Honorable Paula Brown of the Civil District Court of New Orleans, Michael Robin and Earl Benjamin were finally able to say I DO! Forum for Equality sends the happily married couple its biggest congratulations and love!
Couples like Michael and Earl are now able to obtain their marriage licenses in various parishes across the state. Please stay up to date through our Decision Day Resources. We continue to work across Louisiana to make marriage available in every Parish!
We also keep working to end discrimination against the LGBT community entirely! The cycle of injustice against the LGBT community can only come to an end with your help!
With Equality for all,
Executive Director, Forum for Equality
